First Haircut

This is Zack's before pictures. He was in dire need of a haircut. don't you think.

This was finishing up. He was extremely good during the whole process. He only cried a little when she did the front and when she was brushing him off.

Which makes for a really good hair cut. I should have brushed his hair before taking the front picture huh.

Christopher was not nearly as good a Zack when it came to his first haircut. I had to sit him in my lap and try to keep him calm. Christopher had a hard time his first few cuts. Maybe it helped that Zack got to watch Christopher and Mikie get their hair cut first.
Our nephew for his first cut cried so much my sister in law made them stop and did not finish. My mother in law had to catch him asleep and cut his bangs so he could see. He was very stylish with the hair. Much like most of the teenage boys running around now days. Or at least in my area. He finally did get his hair cut right before Christmas and they said he did a good job then.
I wanted to share something that would make my sister in law mad, only if she would read my blog. Anyways I mentioned back in October that our nephew pooped in Christopher's room in the floor back at his birthday party. Well this has been still going on until this weekend. The nephew I'll call him D stayed at the ma maw's house this weekend. Ma maw told D that if he pooped his pants or on the floor he would have to eat it. My SIL got very mad that her mom told him this. But he is no longer pooping his pants or on the floor. It just takes some encouragement to get the ball rolling. I thought this was very funny. Hey whatever works and she should know her mom would not really make him eat his poop. Heck if it was my kid I would go so far as to there nose with it if he had pooped his pants again. My SIL had tried everything everyone had told her but could not get him to stop.

Wipe Fight

This whole week Zack has been a very fussy baby. He will not go to sleep like usual and he has been fussy all day long. He started this on Sunday night so I know it is not just from going to the new daycare. Yesterday he was much better. He did not fuss much and was generally happy and in a playful mood.

I wanted to remember what all we did last night. While super was still cooking, Zack went over to the drawer and pulled out a spoon and started playing with it and climbing the step stool. He gets in trouble for this as I do not want him to fall off of it. I patted his butt with the spoon, I think he thought it was fun.

Next he played in the toy box. See it is under the buffet where the fish tank is. I put the toy box there because he kept crawling under there where the fish tank is plugged up at. By keeping the toy box there his toys are close by and he is not close to being shocked.

He then found a shoe and wanted me to put it on his foot. He only had one white one so I put the brown pair on him. He kept bringing me the white one and wanted it on his foot. I left one of the brown ones on and added the white one. He was content with that.

Now to our grand fun adventure. We had a wipe fight. Much like a snowball fight, Mikie and I threw waded up wipes at each other and at Zack. Chistopher was in his room. He heard us laughing and came out to enjoy the fun. It was really a blast. Zack would take the wipe back to Mikie. When he was hit in the face he thought it was really funny. He kept walking around in between us. I was dodging behind him. I would look for the one Mikie just threw at me and he would pelt me with more. He had an endless supply of wipes at his disposal. Finally I had to say it was time for bed. Zack was a little easier to put to bed. He still wanted to be held until he fell asleep. All thru the week we had to hold him until we was in a deep sleep, if not he would wake up and cry until we held him again and it would take forever to get him back to sleep.

Blogger and I almost had a fight. It put my pictures in different order, I had to fix it and turned some of them, that I do not know how to fix. I first did my pictures on photobucket and used the URL. That worked then didn't work. I have no idea what I am doing I suppose. No wonder I hardly ever put up any pictures. I will work on this and see if I can get better at it.

Where Has My Spare Time Gone

I had to elaborate on the picture in the header. That is Christopher with his tongue stuck to a pole in the snow. My mother in law kept him one day it snowed. She wanted to play in the snow with him and that they did. I used it for my first picture on our myspace page and got so many hits and comments on it.
I will get some pictures on here soon. It is just hard to do. My camera is at home and when I get online I am at work and Now when I had a spare minute at home I was reading this:
Now that I have read it I spend my spare time trying to find a book store that has:
That is what I spent my lunch hour doing today. I looked at Walmart, K-Mart and Krogger. They were the closest places to have books. On my way home I will stop by another Walmart that had all the books on Saturday. And yes I did read the whole thing since Saturday night. The seem to be very good and G rated so far. I think I will give the first one to my mom so she can start reading them. She read Harry Potter right behind me, so I think she will also enjoy these. I blame this on my friend M and My babysitter Mrs. M. They both talked about these books so much I had to try them out for myself.

The New Years Happenings

I had a slight adventure for New Year's Eve this year. We have friends who play in a band together. This was to be there last performance. We get out and see them quite a bit, so naturally we wanted to go and watch there last time together. I asked my mother in law a week before Christmas if she would watch our kids so we could go. She said she would if they did not go to Ohio then. They say this every year and never go. This year was no different, they did not go. So since they could keep our kids I bought the tickets for the show at twenty dollars a ticket. My mom also was going and we rode together to buy them. Come New Year's Eve Mikie asked if I had asked his mom about watching the kids, I had not so I told him to call and make sure. She said her sister was coming up from Florida and she could not watch them. Her sister did not get here until Friday. That is a couple days off in my book. My sister in law also asked it they would keep her kid. One of her friends rented a limo and she wanted to go out with them. Lease she had a DD right? Well she passed for her also. She did not go anywhere nor watch any kids. My dear husband stayed with ours so I could go out with my mom and dad. I did call around for a couple of young girls but they all had plans for the evening.
We go ahead and go to the VFW. If you have never been to the VFW it is the cheapest place to drink and the only place to get liquor in our county. They are also providing food, my mom and I go to the back and check out the food. They have sandwich stuff, little weenies, olives, some kinda dip in a loaf of bread and chips. Not the best, to tell you the truth I was expecting more. But really when your drinking do you really need to eat much? Round about 11:00 my dad was ready to go home, my mom only had one drink and was pretty much ready to go also. We talked to one of the band members and she said she would take me home. Now we really do know them, they come to our house for Thanksgiving every year. So I stayed on. I sat with a lady I only know as Momma. She is always anywhere the band is playing. I also met some interesting people at our table, who in fact may be kin to me. Ya know you can't throw a rock without hitting someone I'm kin to around here.
We also did champagne at midnight. I am not a fan and certainly not a fan of the cheap stuff as which they had there. We got a whole big bottle at that for our table. The lady who drove me home took it home with her for later.
On Friday Mikie's aunt finally came into town. They were at Mikie's moms house and rode around with them and went to my sister in laws house. They however did not come to our house. They wanted Mikie to bring the kids to the big town for them to see them. Fat chance on that. We do not understand why they can go to my sister in laws house, who goes to her mom's all the time and only has one kid, and they want us to get two kids ready and head out to their house for them to see us...hmmmm...They all wanted to go out for breakfast on Saturday morning. We all got ready and headed up there for breakfast at Shoney's. After eating we all stood in the entry way for a few minutes and then we moved outside. Christopher and I went to the car since it was cold outside and I did not have a jacket on. They wanted Christopher to go with them and spend the night. I said he is not allowed to go anywhere since he has not been very good lately. Do they really think he would get to go with them after they cost us money for New Year's Eve. I was sorta glad he was bad and couldn't go.
